If you’re looking to channel the shape of the season, Grant said it’s all about the oval-shaped ring, which can be seen on the likes of Blake Lively (pictured)
Just a few celebrities who have been spotted with oval diamond engagement rings are Blake Lively, Kirsten Dunst, Serena Williams and Ashley Greene.
‘What many don’t realise is that elongated diamond cuts such as the oval usually appeal larger next to the same size round, or square cut diamond.
‘This size illusion makes a great choice for an everlasting investment.’
Grant also said three-stone rings were having a moment, thanks to royal-to-be Meghan Markle.
